Nice build, only thing I would have changed would have been the PSU and maybe gone with the Gskill ripjaws or something, But the tracers do defo have the sex appeal..

Very nice cable management, you'll end up going full watercooling I think. Most people do when they've sampled the awesomeness of the H50

well i'm a fan of trying new things. this psu had all 5 star ratings on every site I went to and I loved the way it looked alot more than the boring static design of corsair psu's. plus its modular and bronze rated. and its DEAD silent while running

and I was tempted to grab ripjaws. 8gb of that would have cost me about 50-60% less than the tracers but I heard great things about them and OH DAYUM THEM LIGHTS BE PRETTAY

shes been running like a dream so far
